Site Specific and Cumulative Results
- Davis-Monthan Air Force Base (PDF) (2 pp, 200K)
Davis-Monthan Air Force Base knows that being “green” in a desert requires a concerted effort by every Airman on Davis-Monthan AFB. To date, Davis-Monthan efforts have resulted in the base using less energy today than we did in 2003 despite mission expansion. Everyone must participate to ensure we think green, build green, fly blue.
